President Jonathan's official photographer shot by unknown gunmen

Callistus Ewelike, a photojournalist with the News Agency of Nigeria & current official photographer of President Jonathan was reportedly shot at close range in front of his house in the Nyanya area of Abuja around 10pm on Monday January 13th.

Callistus, who is attached to the State House, Abuja, was said to be on his way home from work when he was attacked. Sources in the area where it happened said two men, one on a bike and another standing were noticed in front of his house waiting for him. As Callistus made his way into his compound, the man standing by his gate walked up to him and shot him at close range on the neck. Both men fled the scene immediately after the shooting. Callistus was rushed to the National Hospital where he is currently receiving treatment.

This is the second time the NAN photographer and father or two would be attacked. Gunmen forced their way into his home late last year where they took his camera, laptop and other work tools.

Nawa o the currupt ppl fight Jonathan, he's occupying a sensitive position, there's an urgent need for security or guards, if the family loves him the should do something o, this is how it starts, threats, threats, and some more threat and then one day he's executed,then he's gone, unless you are hungry for the great beyond, but if want to be here with the living do something o oga. A life dock is stronger than a dead lion.

Hmmm. Nawa ooo | #NewsBlist

Anonymous said...

Well, may his soul RIP. In my opinion. There are two sides to this coin. He either has something incriminating in his possession which makes dis an in-camp plot or someone is playing a game so they'll think its d opposition dat did it.. In which case it'l b funny cuz if d opposition needed to make a point, killing an innocent photographer would be meaningless, they'd rather go for his aides. So something is off abt dis. I repeat IN MY OPINION before some senseless illitrates start making irritatingly stupid replies. Linda post my comment o!
